|1.||PHYCO Trading Cards|
"PHYCO TRADING CARDS" are the creation/brainchild of Northern California artist, Robert Reed.
Reed, a self taught artist, is also known as Rob Reed and Robert The F Poet.
Tattooing professionally in Northern California from 1979 till 2008, Reed owned and operated "ALTERED IMAGES TATTOO STUDIO" in Guerneville and Petaluma, Calif.
He served his tattoo apprenticeship under Bert Rodriquez of "Bert's Santa Rosa Tattoo", Santa Rosa, Ca.
Also worked with J.D. of "J. and D. Tattoo" in Cotati, Ca.
In March of 2008, Reed started a self induced task of producing as much art work as he could draw in a 100 day period of time. The 100 day effort produced 247 different drawings. 100 of those drawings are what Reed calls "PHYCO TRADING CARDS SERIES #1" They are a 100 card collection of non sports collectable cards. All 100 cards are signed and numbered by the artist. Unfortunaetly, these and the bulk of the 100 day drawing spree, including nearly 160 earlier drawings were left at a residence in Spokane, Washington in Sept. of 2008 while Reed traveled to Santa Rosa, Ca.
Planning to return within a weeks time, Reed did not return to Spokane. Numerous attempts at recovering the "lost artwork" have, at the present time, not been fruitful.
Reed has began drawing the artwork for "PHYCO TRADING CARDS Series #2" in November of 2010.

Mary Benny again: "Did Grace see those PHYCO Trading Cards?"
